Vodafone Australia has reduced the price of its pre-paid mobile broadband starter pack from $149 to $129 and $119 if ordered online. According to IT Wire, Vodafone now claims to have the “best value” on the Australian market.
For the aforementioned price, Vodafone subscribers can get a USB modem and 500 Mb of data to be used in 30 days. The data has been increased, however, to 2GB – offer lasting until 30 September. In the same time, unused data can be rolled over if customers recharge within 30 days of their previous recharge. Recharging costs $19 for about 500 MB, $29 for 1GB and $49 for 3GB.
IT Wire has conducted a simple investigation to see if Vodafone is indeed the “best value” on the market. Their findings suggest the opposite.
A prepaid offer currently made available by the Australian carrier Optus, is “slightly more expensive than Vodafone”, writes IT Wire. Customers can buy up to 3.5 GB for $80 at Telstra.
